Rutgers Dean Receives Travel Grant to Establish Global Site in Greece

Rutgers School of Public Health associate dean for educational program development and professor of epidemiology, Dr. Marian Passannante, has received a travel grant to partially fund travel to Athens, Greece to work with colleagues at the National School of Public Health. Dr. Passannante will finalize a 2019 summer short course on Migration in the European Context: Challenges for Public Health, and will develop a second course on Global Food, Nutrition and Culture with colleagues at Harokopio University, which is planned for 2020. She will accompany Dr. Perry Halkitis, dean of the Rutgers School of Public Health on this trip.

The Rutgers School of Public Health is also establishing a global site in Dodoma, Tanzania where the School will offer a second 2019 summer short course, in collaboration with colleagues at the School of Nursing & Public Health, University of Dodoma, on the Principles and Practices of Public Health in a Global Setting: The Tanzanian Example.

The Rutgers School of Public Health is working to develop global courses, matching graduate students from Rutgers with graduate students from host institutions so that Rutgers students will learn both with and from public health students in global settings.
